Chimodzi: Fair draw but we need good preparations

Chimodzi said the Group L “is not bad” describing Afcon draw which was made in Cairo, Egypt Wednesday as “fair.”

“We got a fair competitive group. But am not saying it’s going to be easy because football in Africa has vastly improved. No team is a minnow anymore, but looking at the group on paper, I want to say it’s a fair one,” said Chimodzi.

“It is now up to us to do the job,” he added.

However, Chimodzi said Malawi success will depend on several factors such “as preparations and approach.”

Flames captain Joseph Kamwendo also said “it is a fair draw.”

According to the fixture, the Flames will host Zimbabwe in their first game during the weekend of 12,13 and 14 June this year before travelling to Swaziland during the weekend of 4,5 and 6 September this year. Then they will travel to Guinea for their last first-round during the weekend of 23,24 and 25 March 2016.

Their first second-round match will be against Guinea during the weekend of 27, 28 and 29 March 2016 at home  before travelling to Zimbabwe during the weekend of 3, 4 and 5 June and the last one will be against Swaziland  on 2, 3 and 4 September.

  15. Raw Nerve says:

    Tactically Malawi National team was way far better during the time if Kinnah Phiri only that there is so much anti north hatred by top officials in the ministry of sports who are behind the hiring of mediocre current coaches.

  27. james ngulinga says:

    I think its a fair group as compared to what we had last time. All we need is good preparation. Government and private sector should fully help for the team to succeed.

  28. Preparation is needed as far as the training and selection of players no need of jackpot.Bravo Flames!!

  29. yuona says:

    Lets not concentrate on the fairness of the draw. All we need are better preparations and approach. If I were Flames coach, I would consider this group as the most difficult one.

  30. Kadakwiza says:

    Mr Chimodzi ayenera kudziwa kuti Zimbabwe yimatibvuta nthawi zonse. Kuyambira nthawi ya china Kinna Phiri, ngakhale nthawi yimene malemu Reuben Malola ali coach olo Bambo Mwenda, Zimbabwe yimatibvuta kwambiri. Chilipo Bambo Chimodzi angachite ayenera kusankha wosewera okhawo akudziwa kuti amasewera mpira wa bwino. Komanso pofunika osewera amene ali ndi experience. Like Robert Ng’ambi, Ngalande, Kamwendo, Kanyenda, Gaba, Msowoya, Nyondo, Chilaponda, Fischer, experience ndiyimene yikufunika. Komabe tikukufunirani mafuno abwino. Mwina ulendo uno tingapite ku Gabon. Ine ndikuona ngati gulupu yimeneyi ndiyobvutabe for Malawi. Its a tough group for us the flames
